Measurement results

YOOLOX announces the capacity of 10k Powerbank 10.000 mAh (mAh) on. Who thinks he can charge a smartphone with 2500 mAh battery 4x is wrong. The capacity of the power bank refers to one Voltage of 3.7 Volt (V), This is usually the rated voltage of a lithium-ion battery, as it usually occurs in power banks.

Smartphones are in turn charged via USB, whose voltage is 5V. More precise is the indication of the watt-hours (Wh) that many manufacturers give. In the case of YOOLOX 10k be 37 Wh specified. Dividing 37 Wh by 3.7V results in 10 Ah or 10.000 mAh at 3.7V. If you divide 37 Wh again by 5V, only 7.4 Ah or 7.400 mAh remains. A smartphone with 2500 mAh could not even load 3x completely.

What does the YOOLOX 10k really do?

I measured the capacity of the battery with the EBD-USB meter. For the test, the power bank is initially fully charged. Then the power bank is discharged again with the aid of a resistor, until the deep discharge protection intervenes and the power bank switches off automatically. The calculated power in watt-hours is then converted into milliamp hours at 3.7V.

The test revealed a given Performance of 34.91 Wh, This corresponds to a capacity of 9451 mAh with 3.7V, which in turn coincides with 95% with the manufacturer's specification.

How fast does the YOOLOX 10k load?

The powerbank supports Qi charging and is equipped with a total of three USB sockets. Here are the technical data:

  • Micro-USB input
    • Quick Charge 2.0
    • 5V / 2A or 9V / 1.8A
  • USB-C input / output
    • Quick Charge 3.0
    • Power Delivery 3.0
    • 5V / 2A or 9V / 2A or 12V / 1.5A (output)
  • USB-A output
    • Quick Charge 3.0
    • 5V / 2.4A or 12V / 1.5A
  • Qi output
    • 5V / 1A

The YOOLOX 10k will charge as soon as the smartphone is connected by cable. To enter the Quick Charge mode The power bank needs exactly one minute to change. Qi charging can only be activated at the push of a button. The LED indicator provides the indication of the active Qi charging function.

Für den wireless charge test was a Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S used. The smartphone is equipped with a 3400 mAh battery. To charge the battery by 10% (Qi), the YOOLOX 10k requires a total of 16 minutes. Ideally, this would correspond to a charging current of 1.28A, which in turn corresponds to the manufacturer's specification.

Both the USB-A, as well as the USB-C port exceed the manufacturer's specification. Up to 3.2A are possible on 5V. Up to 2.3A on 9V and up to 1.6A on 12V. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S was fully charged with 6.46A within 2.66 minutes at maximum 100V.

How long does it take to charge the YOOLOX 10k?

The power bank can be charged from any USB power source via the Micro USB or USB-C. To charge the YOOLOX 10k as fast as possible we recommend a quick charger. On Quick Charge 3.0 Charger requires 3 hours and 47 minutes to fully charge the power bank. An ordinary 5V 2A charger requires 5 hours.
